This is hands down my favourite bronzer so far. As you can see by the photos of the worn out words it is well used and well loved. I would repurchase it as soon as it was all gone, but sadly I think it has been discontinued. I cannot find it anywhere except in a loose powder version. The colour (Medium) is exactly the same, so as soon as I have run out of this, I'm going straight to the E.A counter and ask to try out the loose powder bronzer.
You can build up the colour for the perfect sun kissed glow. At first when you apply it with a brush (I use the Real Techniques contour brush), it can seem a little dark but if you take the time to gently blend it, it gives the perfect finish. I apply it after my foundation and concealer to my cheekbones, jaw line, side of my nose and my temples. It does act as my quick, every day contour. I do use it every day and night. The staying power is brilliant. I never have to re-apply this on a night out, it seems to stick to my foundation like glue but it does't have that cake effect.
I have been using it for two years now and have only hit pan a little in the middle. You do have to be careful as it is shimmery so you don't want to go to work looking like a glitter ball but it looks natural and not at all orange. It is infused with natural minerals and contains light-reflective mica to create a luminous, natural look. The loose powder has exactly the same description so if you are looking to buy something similar, try that one here.
After trying a lot of bronzers, I always come back to this beauty. The loose powder is a little pricey, but so worth the extra pennies- ask for it for Christmas!
What's your favourite bronzer? I've always wanted to try Hoola by Benefit and Nars Laguna!
